With clarity on Basel III expected to remain elusive until 2011, Accenture believes banks that begin to progress their own regulatory approach now will reap significant advantage in the race to attain high performance.
In November 2010, the Group of 20 leading nations will be meeting in Seoul, South Korea,to create a foundation for balanced, sustainable growth in the future. An important part of that discussion will be the ongoing reform of financial and regulatory rules.
However, given the dynamic nature of the G20, it seems unlikely that the clarity desired by many in the industry will be obtained. If this is so, it raises interesting questions, among them:
Following the Seoul G20 Summit, Accenture believes that many countries will push forward independently with specific requirements for the financial institutions operating within their geographies—as the United States as already done with the Dodd-Frank regulation.
As the regulatory landscape evolves, should banks push ahead with their own regulatory agendas? Accenture believes that it would be advantageous to do so, especially when one considers that the agendas of banks and regulators are not mutually exclusive
Accenture recommends that banks progress the main elements of Basel III. The direction has been set, and those institutions that can move ahead rapidly will be in a better position to devote the necessary management resources on customers, competitors and profitability as opposed to focusing on regulatory metrics and ratios in the future.
Specifically, Accenture sees three major areas in which banks seeking high performance under Basel III can improve their overall risk management:
